if edward snowden lost sean penn, he has to many can be hasn't lost me. >> any concerns? >> i don't know what's in his mind. i don't know what he's doing now. he might be in a hot tub with two russian strippers named i want to drink a lot. he's done some service, getting us to at least debate the issue and as far as stuff gone on the last week or so with the european allies being up sit, i can understand if they felt their personal cell phones were being tapped. but on the other hand, they should really climb a little bit. it's been 60, 70 years since america defended allies, especially in europe. we liberated europe twice in the last century. they never wanted to pay the premiums for being protected. cut us a little slack when we protect you. the 9/11 plot was hatched in germany. there are much more restive muslim populations on the european continent than here. we over do it all. there is no doubt about that. cut us slack for the protection we've given you-all this time. >> that could be an endorsement of what the nsa has been doing and what you said about edward snowden. so where do y

from edward snowden has gone on to what anyone realize beyond the wiretapping of angela merkel's personal cell phone. it's hard to believe a terrorist would call her up and say i'm a terrorist and just that i would let you know we are going to blow up a building. doesn't sound very likely that they should be doing that. at least that's my opinion. >> host: what do you make of the revolution's overall but the work the nsa is doing and how that either helps or contributes to what the work at the fbi and the cia do? >> guest: well, the fbi is an important agency obviously. it seemed to miss revelations that they've gone beyond what anyone suspected they could be doing. i personally don't think the correction of what they call metadata, which is like every phone call, you know, is not overheard. that seems to me to be going on what his message very. if they have a bad guy, they can go to the foreign intelligence surveillance court and put on for a warrant and they'll get a warrant in almost every case. to wiretap that person. they don't need to know that i was talking to my brother

the story about edward snowden, information that was published in him window this morning -- in undo" newspaper this morning. interesting that the monitoring activity according to these peaked on the 11th of december and that there was a lull in the activity around christmas. coming on the day that the spanish and u.s. ambassador was summoned by the french government. he met this morning with a minister in the foreign ministry and the spanish capital. no reaction after the meeting, but it is bad timing and there may be more pressure on the spanish government to come out more strongly. condemnedy have not the allegations as much as their allies in germany and france. clear, is there a clarity of the kind of timing of the incidents that corresponded? words, why would the americans be interested in all of this? not appear that on those particular days any public incidents or events that we have knowledge of or going on, so why , or is itr that month the fact that we have window surveillance that might go on more generally and that this is not that abnormal? difficult to say due to the n

by edward snowden in spain in the last couple of days in france in germany, has been of such a proportion and scale that that was not expected, and the spying on leaders has been of such a length of time and invasiveness that that was not expected. so it's about scale and proportionality as well. yes, people expect spying. yes friend-on-friend spying is not entirely unexpected, we're not naive. but friend on friend spying of this degree, by citizens around the world by the nsa allegedly is something that needs to be investigated. this is not just a human rights issue, this has commercial implications. if plas data has been taken on this scale and encryption has been compromised that is a commercial issue. we are asking number one, that we get to the truth because we can't -- you have to reestablish trust between the eu and u.s. on this. this is important. secondly we're saying get some proportionality into this. we need to begin a process that says look we're not expecting some admission tomorrow but let's start a process of accountability. we have a problem in the european union. we have
an issue since edward snowden and the nsa who are these contractors getting into our databases it was a focus of kathleen sebelius' testimony, you know, last week. they were kind of -- they were going after her on some of the security flaws that they thought might be. >> i was at that hearing. she didn't say gee we knew qssi had security issues and there was this huge problem last june. i don't remember her saying that at the hearing. i never remember hearing her despite of the fact they had security flaws decided they would be the good person to fix it it? >> you you are right. they are reacting to these issues as they come up. it doesn't seem as if there is any. >> it seems so basic to me that you don't hire a company -- there are some companies that you can get let's not get one under investigation for swindling the british or qssi who had some sort of security lapse last summer. i'm taking the last one on that. never dull moment. >>> straight ahead hundreds of thousands of americans dropped. now they need new insurance plans. that is not an easy process. self-employed busin
own allies, some of the documents posted by or leaked by edward snowden to the media indicate these programs started in 2002. why spy on an ally? >> jake, if there were such a program, it would be classified. i couldn't talk about it. it would be totally inappropriate. i haven't been in the loop obviously for more than four years. so it's just one of those subjects i couldn't discuss. >> without getting specific, on a theoretical basis, what is the interest of the united states in conducting surveilance on a country or a leader who is a clear ally of the united states? >> i've got to go with the answer i've given you. let me say this. we do have a fantastic intelligence capability worldwide against all kinds of potential issues and concerns. we are vulnerable as was shown on 9/11. and you never know what you're going to need when you need it. the fact is we do collect a lot of intelligence. without speaking of any particular target or group of targets that intelligence capability is enormously important to the united states to our conduct of foreign policy, to the defense matt
edward snowden is reinforcing the notion that u.s. spying spreads wide and goes deep. the latest bombshell, partly denied by the obama administration, appears in the "washington post." it says u.s. intelligence agencies have gained access to hundreds of millions of google and yahoo user accounts by secretly tapping into company data centers. late today, six top tech companies-- yahoo, google, aol, apple, microsoft and facebook-- sent a letter to congress, calling for enhanced privacy protections. barton gellman broke the story for "the washington post." welcome, bart gellman, how are you? welcome to the newshour. what is the difference between what you're reporting that happened and what the white house and the administration is pushing back at and saying didn't happen? >> well, there have been several versions of it but so far they have not denied any of the facts stated in the story. yesterday general alexander, the head of the n.s.a., denied that the n.s.a. is tapping into the servers or databases or data centers of google and yahoo! that's not what we said. what we said is th
, but not spying on friends. >> reporter: former national security agency contractor edward snowden leaked documents revealing the u.s. tapped german chancellor awningle -- angella merkel's cell phone. president obama steered clear of the controversy, as he helped swear in his new fbi director. but the white house is saying, u.s. intelligence gather suggest under review. >> the president clearly feels strongly about making sure that we are not just collecting information because we can, but because we should. >> reporter: besides being embarrassing, spying on allies could have economic consequences, as washington works to negotiate a major trade deal with the european union. >> reporter: former state department james lewis says the u.s. won't stop the program because in a post-9/11 world, the information is too valuable. >> this makes us safer. less surveillance means less successful successful -- more successful attacks. >> reporter: danielle nottingham, wjz eyewitness news. >> some u.s. lawmakers are defending the spying practices. they argue places like france are safer because of the n
of europe's scorn. the white house can thank nsa leaker, edward snowden. president obama has had to apologize to hollande, merkel, and current and former leaders in mexico and president ruseff who even canceled a state visit to washington she was so angry. while the nsa scandal is also causing protests at home, with european allies, it could cost serious money. the european union, america's largest trading partner, is threatening to cancel pending trade talks in the u.s. >> when we're doing this in germany, france, great britain, other nations we've been allied with in fighting al qaeda, invading libya, these kinds of things just trample trust. >> the administration and its defenders say most of the spying is legitimate for the protection of the u.s. and its allies. >> so a bad guy in afghanistan can use networks in france or germany or great britain or the united states and plan operations with somebody else who may be in afghanistan, but you could still use all of those networks. >> the nsa has issued an unusual denial of one british report that said president obama had been to
is for david ignatius for sure. new reporting confirms what edward snowden leaked last week that the scope extends to some of america's closest allies abroad. the "wall street journal" reports that the national security agency ended a program that spied on as many as 35 world leaders after the white house ordered a review over the summer. officials say several programs have been shut down and others are expected to be close to the later date. the report states president obama spent nearly five years in office in the dark. unaware of the nsa's practices overseas. the targets of the programs are not decided by the president, but by the agency. yesterday congressman peter king defended the program saying they should be viewed as a positive thing for everyone involved. >> i think the president should stop apologizing and being defensive. the nsa saved thousands of lives not just in the united states, but in france and germany and throughout europe. we are not doing this for the fun of it, but to gather intelligence that helps not just us. >> there reports out of germany that the president did
